Following eyelid surgery it is common to have a good deal of bruising. When the bruising occurs beneath the skin around the eye, it appears as purple and blue, then fades to green, and finally yellow. When the bruising occurs beneath the scleral surface of the eye it appears as bright red (bloodshot). The redness will gradually recede without changing color as the bruising resolves. Some doctors and patients find that taking Arnica before and/or after surgery may be help to accelerate the resolution of bruising, however this has not been definitively proven. As you are already at day eight after surgery it won't be much longer before all of the bruising, including the bloodshot appearance, disappears on it's own.
